In my time as a board member I’ve watched the Australian Multicultural Community Services grow from its roots in the Polish Australian community
to the emerging area of refugee and migrant social care. Its commitment to the immigrant aged through its provision of services is impressive, and through its research and conference sponsorship AMCS has provided leadership to the whole multicultural health and welfare field.
I hold the position of Professor of Intercultural Studies at RMIT University, where I’ve been engaged in academic and research activities in immigrant and refugee settlement for almost four decades. I’m also chair of Religions for Peace Australia, and was awarded an OAM for my involvement in intercultural education and the interfaith movement.
